Simple Tomboy like Notes in Windows

Until Tomboy is properly ported to Windows, similar functionality can be achieved with tools already provided by windows.

  1. Open up your Documents folder and create a folder called Quick Notes.
  2. Create a shortcut to Notepad (or similar text editor application) in the Quick Notes folder.
  3. Right click the shortcut to Notepad and select Properties. Put the full path to the Quick Notes folder in the Start in: field.
  4. Right click on your task bar and go to Toolbars > New Toolbar ... and select the Quick Notes folder.
Voila! Quick and easy access to your notes.
